It was quiet on a wet Saturday evening and suited us fine. The house special Bloody Mary was very spicy and very good. Tempura starter was soggy and disappointing but the main course burger and mussels were much better. Service was relaxed past the point of comfort and an 18% service charge was added to the bill with no way... More

Had such a wonderful experience. Served by Amarillis but everyone looked after us and ensured we had what we needed. We had a long leisurely brunch and we're not rushed. Food was great, we ordered the kale salad and banana pancakes to share. Highly recommended.

I was looking for a nice breakfast spot - something more than those places on Ocean Drive that are usually crowded with hungover kids - and The Local House was perfect for my choice. A little bit on the further end of the strip, but it turned out to be a nice morning walk on the beach for me. Despite... More

Our server could've been slightly more attentive but... More

Amazing South Beach Location for Brunch! The restaurant is cute, clean with an amazing outdoor seating area that is perfect for South Beach weather. Very versatile menu with something that will appeal to everyone. A little pricey but well worth the money with the quality of food delivered. Service was amazing, accommodating and very professional. Vegetarian friendly and the staff... More

Fabulous brunch. Mahi Mahi tacos for me and seared tuna salad for the missus. Seriously good food and - unusually for America - sensibly sized so I didn't have to leave half of it or take it home in a box. Only discovered on the last day or I'd have been here a lot more. Very pleasant people too.

If possible, I would eat here every day. The food is just amazing- my favorite of course being the breakfast 'a la carte'. Don't miss the lunch menu though, they have and amazing Fish Ceviche and Mahi Mahi tacos.

Stuff was very pleasant and nice, food was good, portions are big enough but taste can be better. Prices are fare.
